Nearly 6 million people don’t realize that diabetes is attacking their bodies. The Diabetes Maintenance Panel is an effective panel for both diabetics and for those who want to see if they have diabetes. The four tests in this panel will give you and your doctor a lot of knowledge. The Complete Blood Count (CBC) tests for blood disorders such as infection or anemia; the Fasting Glucose is used to detect both hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia, to help diagnose diabetes, and to monitor glucose levels in persons with diabetes; the Hemoglobin A1c can detect pre‐diabetes, diagnose it, or see if diabetes is under control; and finally, the Diabetic Urinalysis will determine if albumin (protein) is found in your blood (if so, it’s possible your kidneys aren’t working properly). The knowledge gained from the four tests in this panel will give you and your physician the necessary information to help monitor and/or adjust your diabetic medications.
